Saint-Gobain becomes group with most EPDs registered in the International EPD® System

With the EPD registrations made in January, Saint-Gobain has now become the company group with the most Environmental Product Declarations published in the International EPD® System. The companies in the group manufactures and distributes building and high-performance materials.

The EPDs registered in the International EPD® System are primarily for Gypsum and Insulation products, but also for mortars and innovative materials. Brands include British Gypsum, Gyproc, Rigips, Isover, Weber, SolarGard and Ecophon. All EPDs published in the recent years are made in compliance with the European standard EN 15804 to provide the Core Product Category Rules.

“We are extremely proud to be the Group with most EPDs registered in the International EPD® System. At Saint-Gobain, we carried out our first LCAs in the early 1990s and since then, we have chosen LCA as the main tool for measuring the environmental footprint of our products.

We provide the results to our customers through verified EPDs so they can use this credible information for their own projects,” says Camillle Fabre, Sustainable Habitat Manager at Saint-Gobain.

The declarations are publically available to any interested stakeholder via the EPD database at www.environdec.com.
